Carlson School Speaker Series and Happy Hour: Health Reform Scenarios Following the 2016 Election


November 10, 2016


6:30pm to 8:30pm


All eyes are on the US Presidential Election of 2016 and no matter which candidate ends up in the White House, the result will have significant implications. The Carlson School of Management invites you to an exclusive Happy Hour on Thursday, November 10th – less than 48 hours after election results are announced – where our Associate Dean, Stephen Parente, will discuss the healthcare landscape in light of the election results.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was born in a political crucible and need to endure 2017 premium spikes to survive.  Both parties would like to see changes but a bipartisan consensus is far from delivered.  Professor Parente will walk through the major different reform scenarios post 2016 election based on his research from a micro-simulation model that has more often then not predicted the impact of different legislative policy since 2004 starting with the introduction of the Health Savings Account (HSA) market.  Parente, currently a CBO adviser, published peer review articles and opinion briefings accurately predicting provider wage increases from ACA and the impact of SCOTUS Medicaid expansion decision on enrollment in the Marketplaces as well as describing the coming 2017 premium spike as early as 2014 in the Wall Street Journal.  Join us for a conversation where no question is off the table.

At this event, you will also have the chance to learn more about the Carlson School Industry MBA, which is a one-of-a-kind, one-year program for current, past or aspiring congressional staffers that is offered primarily online. We look forward to seeing you!


RSVPs are required.
